Judges: Steve Gonzales/Houston Chronicle, Scott Kingsley/Houston Chronicle, Mark Mulligan/Houston Chronicle
The judges like the way the first and second-place photographers captured the emotion of what could have been an ordinary press conference / meeting photos. Third was a solid graduation photo. Other graduations entries were entered with multi-images which hurt the entry.
